I don't know who or how many people read this blog. But I hope if you know us at all you would say that we are real. We are just like any other couple that is trying our best to raise these boys to look and listen for God. We aren't trying to raise them to be perfect because we can't. We are faced with the same things each day as many of you. Homework. Bills. Family issues. Aging mothers. Jobs. Kids. Laundry. And all the other stress that goes into a day's time. And more often than not it is hard to find "Joy" in all things. However, we are leaning on an All Sufficient God to get us through.
I remember growing up I put my pastor's and their family on a pedestal. Don't ask me why. Looking back now and knowing what I know I shouldn't have. Yes maybe I held them to a higher standard because when you are called by God to do His work you are held to a higher standard to some degree. But all Christians are. And have you ever noticed that if you do have someone on a pedestal, they fall off?
So as I thought about this I thought I would share a bit of our home with you. Some of you have been here. Some have not. Talk about real? I thought I would give you a quick tour.
